Child care and dependent care expenses
Child care and dependent care expenses may be documented.*
*Funding for child care is limited to children ages 12 and under. Child care funding will not be provided to students whose spouse is working less than half-time or is enrolled in school less than half-time.
Limited funding is available to provide a combination of campus grants and loans to cover the documented additional expenses. The Child Care Expenses form [PDF] should be completed by both the student and the child care provider. Funds are available on a first-come basis until depleted. Federal Direct Loans or private alternative loans may also cover these costs.
